Default 2008 Bowman Chrome Redemption Notice from Topps

For those of you waiting with baited breath for your Rene Tosoni redemption from 2008 Bowman Chrome baseball (from Topps)...

Dear Consumer.

This email is to inform you that the Topps Company is currently experiencing a delay in processing the following redemption card:

PIN #: BC******UE, Product: Bowman Chrome, Card/Player Name: Rene Tosoni AU

Our staff is working diligently to process and ship your redemption card as soon as possible. Please continue to check your Online Redemption account for updates regarding the status of your card.

Do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations department via phone at 1-800-489-9149 or via email at support@etopps.com for assistance. A consumer relations representative will be available to assist you Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30 pm (ET).


I have three of them and would really prefer a replacement (ANY replacement)... Tosoni will be 23 in July and has not advanced beyond A+ ball with the Twins.

I'm still waiting for a few redemptions from '07 Bowman Draft, too... assuming the same holds true for many members of this board.

Topps redemption program is the worst out of the 3. Good luck with who you get. My guess will be a Bowman SIGN OF THE TIMES common. Not even a chrome! I had that kind of a "greatness " player in 06 chrome and that's what i recieved. BOOOOOO TOPPS BOOOOOO.

I just got the same email about an Angel Villalona Auto-- Did they run out of cards already?--

Either way you are screwed here, Topps will not send you a comparable replacement. I doubt you will get a Chrome replacement... but the Tosconi will not be worth it either---

Good Luck with whatever you choose

Also, the 2007 Bowman Chrome Draft Redemptions I am told they are still working on the Detwiler and Frazier because they have SOOOO many redeemed that they cannot afford to send out replacements for those cards

Short-printing the Angel Villalona auto from '08 Chrome would be a bad hit to an already-bad product... Tosoni, on the other hand, can be replaced by just about anyone and it would be an upgrade.

I heard they were having problems with Detwiler and Frazier from last year's BDP (I have 3 Detwilers and a Frazier outstanding)... what a mess.
